Norfolk offers the holiday maker the glory of wide open skies, historic houses and plentiful wildlife. National Trust holiday cottages in Norfolk are located in unique locations ideal for wildlife and access to some of the most beautiful estates in Norfolk.
North of Norwich is the Blickling Estate, home of Blickling Hall and the surrounding formal gardens.The story of the estate unfolds over a thousand years. The landscape w ith its hedges and narrow tree-lined lanes has changed little over the centuries and is quintessentially Norfolk. We have a number of cottages across this famous estate including the magnificent ‘Grandstand Tower’. It looks like a mini castle, complete with Rapunzel tower offering views across the fields towards the coast. Once the second Earl of Buckinghamshire's race stand, this holiday cottage now sleeps four in modern comfort. Less grand but equally welcoming are the Dairy House sleeping 5, and Blacksmith’s Cottage sleeping 4.
If you are looking for a holiday cottage on the North Norfolk coast you could try Horsey Barns. Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts love the Horsey Barns, a collection of three individual cottages (1,2 & 3) sleeping between 3 & 6 people. The Horsey estate is an internationally important site for wildlife and offers a great spot for birdwatching and wintering wildfowl. Horsey Windpump provides stunning views over the Norfolk coast and broadland.
Further round the coast at Sheringham you can stay in a converted Cart Lodge. Situated at the edge of Sheringham Park, and a 20 minute walk from the village of Sheringham this covered lodge can sleep between 2 and 6 people in four individual cottages, 1, 2, 3 and 4 Cart Lodge Barn.
